How to change the primary monitor with Display Switch on IGEL OS 11?


In OS11 Display Switch how do you change the primary monitor i.e. switch the toolbar to the second screen and open apps by default in the same? *I have set the User Interface>Desktop>Taskbar>Monitor to Automatic, and also set the Display Index to 1 in Display Switch on the monitor which it works for most end users but not all. Is there a way to enable the ability to choose your primary monitor in Display Switch in a single click?


I assume that you are using the smart configuration (newer Display Switch), what happens when you use the „old“ one, by opening a terminal and issuing the command xfce4-display-settings ?


The old one had this – you are correct that I am using the new one now.


You should be able to set the primary display by choosing the numbering 1 for the primary (direct under use this display).
